Starting a Home Based Business - Why I Quit the Rat Race to Work Harder and Longer, While Being Much Happier
The resource box should have a two links, wonder the home page at 1 to another area. And it should be worded something like this...
I didn't start out dreaming about my own home-based business. I had a good job that paid well, with excellent benefits. This is the kind of job that is becoming increasingly rare in today's job market
Here's a few reasons that were NOT part of my decision to start my own business.
1. Your time is your own. This is true, but the fact is that when you work for yourself, there's never enough hours in the day to get everything done
2. I can be with my family. Also true. But working for yourself involves discipline. No matter what you do in your business being productive = being paid.
3. Unlimited moneymaking potential. Once again, almost all home-based businesses has unlimited potential. You can't pay the rent on potential, however.
Nope, the reason why I left a well-paying job to start my own home-based business was traffic. I know. I know. You're thinking, a guy must be crazy to give up a six-figure income for the uncertainty of working for himself in a home-based business.
It was taking me two hours each way to get to work in return each day. That was four unproductive hours that I used to come up with some great home-based business ideas. All it took was some time to think outside the box and the idea started flowing.
During each passing month, traveling the freeway four hours daily, my dissatisfaction with working for corporate America increased. During the same four hours, my excitement about the possibility of working from home and having my own home-based business increased.
I'm not going to tell you what kind of home based business I actually started. All business, but especially small business is about doing what you love to do instead of being told what to do by someone else.
So although I am working longer and making less money has never been happier. As the business grows, I fully expect to be able to spend more time with my family and continued to grow that unlimited moneymaking potential into a solid business.
If you have any interest in following your dream of a home-based business, start looking at the possibilities. So many of my friends have wanted to start their own business but instead of figuring out how they can do it they only look at the challenge it is to be successful. Don't let the challenges of working from home, and starting your own business stop you from following your dream
